Little Turtle With Pink Flower Shell

Here’s the cute turtle I painted for sweet Miss B., a little girl with Cockayne Syndrome here in the USA.  Her mom told me she likes pink and cheetah print, so I designed a little turtle just for her.

I always think of Knox when I see baby turtles.  This is an example of where art truly is medicine. It was a joy to paint something for someone else, with happy memories in my heart.

I started off with a crisp white 6″ x 6″ wrapped canvas.  I buy them at Michael’s, using my weekly email coupon.  I loosely sketched the design onto the cavas with a pencil…

Then I began to paint the design using my favorite Golden acrylic paints. I buy these at Michael’s, too.  Yep, with the coupons.

Even the palette looks pretty to me when I use these bright colors!

Then I added details with fine tip pens. I’m trying out this set from Faber-Castell. I usually use ZIG pens, but I wore my set out after extended use, and I had this other set on hand.  I especially like the brush pen for lettering.

FInishing touches with the brush pen…

The cutest little turtle for one of the cutest little girls ever…

Love you Princess B., hugs and kisses from Texas!
